It’s a return to Eredivisie action Sunday, as FC Twente visit the Kuip. The glory days of the club from Enschede seem far behind them and this season has turned into a fight against relegation. So, it’ll no doubt be a tough nut for Feyenoord, sandwiched as it is between the two games against Rangers. Indeed, it’ll be interesting to see how the Rotterdammers react after Thursday’s mental exertions. And there’s also the little matter of the 2-3 defeat suffered at the hands of FC Twente just before Christmas.

Feyenoord will be hoping to reproduce the form they showed in Glasgow. The 2-1 reverse at Vitesse last Sunday cost the club pole position in the championship and Bert Van Marwijk will be hoping to see a better performance this time round. Jon Dahl Tomasson returns from suspension to reclaim his place alongside Van Hooijdonk. Ibrox hero Shinji Ono is uncertain however, after picking up a knock against the Gers. Robbie van Persie stands by to take his place if necessary. Otherwise it looks like Feyenoord will open with the same eleven that started midweek as they attempt to reproduce the 5-1 victory in the corresponding fixture last season. PROBABLE TEAMS FEYENOORD Zoetebier; Emerton, Loovens, Paauwe, Rzasa; Kalou, Bosvelt, Van Wonderen, Ono (Van Persie); Tomasson, Van Hooijdonk. FC TWENTE Boschker; Van der Weerden, Grujic, El Brazi, Heubach; Van der Laan, Van der Doelen, Cziommer; Cairo, Van de Paar (Houwing), Booth.
